Contact us for the exact requirements of the used vertical machining center you wish to sell.


Condition Photographs

We will need photographs taken of the machine. We may request specific angles or components to show customers exactly what they are potentially purchasing. There are some components of machines that are prone to wear, so these should be included. Taking high-quality photographs initially will be very helpful in moving the process along. Visit our Help Center to learn more about used vertical machining center photo guidelines.

Floor Requirements

We need to know what your floor requirements are. Can you keep this machine on your floor until it is sold? Or do you need the machine off the floor immediately? It is very expensive to move machines, so we can save you a lot of money if we keep the machine with you until we can find a buyer who will move the machine themselves. There is also the option of consignment arrangements.

Vertical machining centers have a vertical spindle where the tools will point straight down from the tool holder and cut across the top of the material. Vertical machining centers are slightly less expensive than Horizontal Machining Centers. VMC’s are also typically enclosed and have a standard of 3 axes, although you can add more.

Typically smaller production shops will find these machines to be cost effective. They have a simple setup and are easier to manage than HMC’s. There are also advanced CNC capabilities with machining centers which make them much more efficient. Some advancements available include spindle speeders, quick-change workholding devices, rotary indexes (which allow 4-5 axis work), angle heads, and tool-and-part probes. One disadvantage to the VMC is that due to its position, the chips are not discharged as easily and will sometimes pile up. This can cause damage to the tool as well as the surface of the material being processed. You will find our VMC’s in the CNC machine category.

Our company wants to make this as convenient as possible for you! We know how busy you are running your shop and don’t have time for the back and forth of selling machines. Let us do all of the hard work and take that burden off of your shoulders. Revelation Machinery handles all contact with potential customers which frees up all of your time to focus on your company operations. We are even willing to come out to your shop to meet and discuss how we can meet your goals for acquiring and liquidating machinery for the near future. Our main focus is building relationships with our customers so we can provide top quality service.
